my kitchen/dining finished…almost

Yaay, I finally have something that looks like a kitchen! For this post i only reveal the dining part. Since i begun re-painting the kitchen dresser, i also painted the table which was a classical old blue formica table. I bought the rug from a flea market which i brought to the laundry (of course) and collected some old mirrors.I changed the ugly lights we had before with those classical paper lanterns, and I found the crocheted cloth in Emmaus that i use as a curtain….

The blue closet on the background was supposed to go on the wall on top of the sink as we don’t have any storage in the kitchen. But We will move in 3 months from here, so we decided not to drill more holes. Besides, it made the spot for our cat.

I’ve found this plexi box with 3 compartments, it was thrown out by a cosmetic shop. It fitted perfectly my side table and provides multiple storage, exactly what i needed!

The box wrapped with paper like a gift that you see on the background is Maki’s spot in the kitchen. He likes to be with us when we are dining as though he is participating to our discussions 🙂

I am collecting all kind of prints and paintings with cats. This one on the fridge is quiet kitsch! I like it!

The blue shelve and the top of the side table is the « morning spot » with coffee cups, coffee machine,kettle and the toaster.

The two chairs from 50’s are also found in the street, the other two were in the family garage. I want to replace them by thonets one day.

As i am a big follower and disciple of Emmaus, they know me now and even make me little gifts from time to time if I make a big purchase. This trivet is one of their gifts. I like it although the ceramic is cracked.

lampe hallogene

Ok, let’s speak some french in respect to my french name (décologue) and to my geographical being 😉 From now on, i’ll use the turquoise color all the things i write in FR, and black for the english version.

Voila une lampe hallogene en bois que j’ai achete à Emmaus à 5 euros au moment de notre emmenagement à Caen, que j’ai ensuite decoré avec la technique du décollage. A vrai dire, je n’aime pas les lampadaires hallogenes, je les trouve ringards, mais il n’y a rien à leur reprocher pour leur qualite d’eclairage, en plus réglable!

So here is a wood hallo lamp that i picked at Emmaus (charity flea markets in France) for 5 euros in october when we moved in Caen. I decorated it with decollage technique. Frankly speaking, i don’t like halo lamps’ design, i think it’s corny, however, there’s nothing to say about it’s way of lightning which is even adjustable.
